Video: UEA students win award for video about homelessness in Norwich
Three budding broadcast journalists from the University of East Anglia have won a national BBC award for an innovative documentary about homelessness in Norwich.
The three students - Guy Wilson, 21, Will Hanford, 20, and Nate Dove, 23 - created a documentary about living on the streets of Norwich, which was designed to be viewed across five screens running simultaneously.
The trio travelled to the BBC's new Media City, in Salford, to take part in a one-day conference on Thursday and emerged victorious to claim the Postgraduate Student Journalism Innovation Award.
Guy added: 'This was the first film any of us had made, and the support we received was instrumental in our success.
'It brought us together as a group of friends, put us in touch with the city we've called home for so long, and it remains the single most rewarding and satisfying achievement of my three years at UEA.

The students produced the documentary as part of a broadcast journalism module at the UEA, in conjunction with BBC Voices and SeeMedia - an EU-funded project to create an Internet TV Channel for young people in the North Sea region of Europe.
